Yes, people who think this is a sequel will be disappointed. It's only a spin-off.
But in my opinion it's better than the first ToS.

PS: Hopefully I can undub this one too. We'll see~

Terrible compared to the main Tales series (Symphonia, Abyss, Vesperia, Destiny Remake; stuff like that), with a broken battle system and dungeon-copypastas from the first ToS. Nice story I guess, but not nice enough to make you forget the game's flaws. I'd recommend not getting it unless you're really starved for RPGs, take advantage of the 360's RPG-offer instead.

So europe is finally getting this low budget spin-off. It's not that bad of a game, but still it could have been better. I really liked the first one on the GC as well, so I'll probably pick this up, but not for a while, i have better games to buy right now.

No, it's a sequel. The problem was it was treated like a spin-off during production (given an inadequate budget and small development cycle). It's the classic "Give Wii owners the inferior game, while giving the 360 and PS3 owners the real game" situation we are forced to live with. Castlevania, Resident Evil, Soul Calibur, Tales (no longer the case, with Graces), Silent Hill; each one of these are franchises that developers developed their core games on the HD consoles while the Wii was given shovelware. This isn't even counting the series that didn't even get a Wii 3rd string developer made title like Street Fighter, although you could argue TvC is suppose to be our substitute.

What's most insulting? They expect these games to not only do as well as the core games but better. Wii gamers might get treated like stupid consumers, but luckily sales figures shows the exact opposite, they are not falling for these inferior games.
